 Ingredients List

  • 2 breams (about 24 oz.)
  • 1/4 oz. garlic
  • 1/4 oz. green onion
  • 1/4 oz. ginger
  • 1 T. cooking wine
  • 2 tsp. dark soy sauce
  • 1 T. vinegar
  • 3/4 oz. spicy soy bean paste
  • to taste salt
  • 2 T. vegetable oil


Cut off the head and tail of each fish, and chop the middle part transversely into 5-6 pieces (of 1”³~1.5”³ thickness). Rub the salt on the surface of the fish, and pickle for 10 minutes. Slice the ginger and chop the shallot into 1” pieces.
Heat the oil in a pan. Fry the pickled fish until one side gets golden brown on the surface (about 2 minutes). Turn over the fish and repeat with the other side. Add the cooking wine, soy sauce, and vinegar. Add water to immerse half of the fish.
When the soup comes to boil, add the spicy soy bean paste, ginger, garlic, and green onion, and stir to combine. (Set aside some green onion for garnishing.) Cover and cook over medium heat until the sauce turns thick. Serve garnished with the remaining green onion.
